Blog/Long-Term Impact

35 countries, 500 communities and 60,000 plus volunteers. All from a singular vision.

Imagine building a church for a Navajo village, roofing a home, or teaching a child. Imagine serving the world today.

Mission Trips: Serving the world. Changing yourself.

Before: A trip to school meant a 1.5-mile detour around an unsafe bridge.
After: A direct path to learning for Navajo students.

Good businesses making great differences

A Lifetouch group built a school in the Dominican Republic, testing its teamwork with a fast-moving bucket brigade.

Lesson #1: Everyone has something to give.

Students repair a roof, preserve a home, and learn how working together can change everything.

The ultimate quality time: Serving as a family

Serving together—like building a school in Ecuador—creates cultural immersion and a sense of global responsibility.

Communities Serving Communities

Communities like radio audiences can band together to make a difference, such as ensuring access to clean water in Kenya.

The World's Swirl

The familiar phrase from the Book of Matthew exhorts us to remember “…each day has enough trouble of its own…” In other words, stay focused on today. A couple of familiar quotes tell us we can learn from yesterday, hope for tomorrow, BUT live for TODAY! Similarly the cartoonist Bil Keane said, “Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift.”

At World Servants we have urged people to stay in the moment of every day during their mission trip experience. Today IS the gift. Unfortunately, world events sometimes create genuine and yet false concerns about the daunting task of serving in the developing world.

There is the threat of disease (e.g. Sierra Leone), of war (e.g. Ukraine), of terrorism (e.g. ISIS/ISIL), of natural disasters (e.g. Nepal) and of violence (e.g. Baltimore). All these threats contribute to the doubts and barriers people think about when they consider serving the less fortunate in the developing world. And, yet, nearly 1,000 people went with World Servants on a mission trip in 2015. Thank the Lord for those brave hearts who listen to His call.

Please join us in the cause of loving our global neighbors through all its swirl and trauma. Let’s do something today that will pay temporal and eternal dividends! Why Not? Go, Serve, Give…
